Frontiersmen used to call a passage through the mountains a "break". Such breaks were a rare thing indeed, offering the early settlers an opportunity to take their frontier lives to a new level. Layer upon layer of history welcomes today's visitor, as does the still resplendent beauty of this unique 4600-acre park. Established in 1954 by an act of Congress initiated by the efforts of the two states it crosses, Virginia and Kentucky, it is now one of only two such interstate parks in the USA.
Our 138 sites range from a great place to pitch your tent to full RV hook-ups. Most of these sites are wooded but if you prefer, grassy areas are available in Campground D. Playgrounds, a basketball court, a well-stocked store and a laundry facility are available. The campground is open each year from March 1st to the first Monday in December.
